Heeeeeyyyyy!!!!! 😍✌🔮 I have been working my little bum off to sort my life out since mum passed 🙏 it's not easy to say the least 😭
I've been working behind the scenes on my business & my future business goals 👊📚🤩 & bagged myself an AMAZING opportunity 😍 ( which I can't disclose on fb as of yet 🤔) but it secures my little families future & is one HUGE step towards my dreams 💫
So for anyone who dosnt know these ⬇️ are what I'm working on & with 💫🔮🙏 while I continue to study 📚 & work on my end game 🤩
I used to have this thing where I would be unable to leave the house without makeup. Out of feeling ugly and people noticing my ugliness.
I’ve come to learn that ugly isn’t necessarily a physical attribute to begin with and my body dysmorphia was lying to me the whole time anyway.
I still feel self conscious about my skin because of the way mast cells make it super reactive to everything. I feel self conscious about my hair loss (not so much on my head funnily enough) I don’t have a great deal of eyebrow left.
Having said that I am also rational enough to now that my hair loss and skin are caused by medical issues and if people don’t like the way it looks then that’s their issue because I’m busy not caring.
Point of the story is that I’ve developed a certain level of strength and self acceptance that has both helped and been influenced by my understanding and empathy of others. I also do still like to wear makeup, I just don’t do it out of an enforced societal necessity. Kids you look fucking great, go out and give em hell 🤟🏻
These are my beloved souls in a bottle, plant friends that dig into our roots to remind us of who we really are and are capable of. I'd love for you to receive the healing from them as well, and learn that life can be an enjoyable experience. It doesn't mean it won't be hard, flower remedies can only do so much but they gently nudge you back where you need it.
Flower remedies are a form of homeopathy that target the emotional body specifically. They are energetical infusions believed to have the plants pure spiritual essence, hence the name flower remedies or flower essences. Although not accepted by modern medicine as legitimate, this doesn't stop me from believing. Why? Science today will be very different in the years to come, what we consider science will be laughed at in the future as primitive. Someday science may finally accept what it can't see today but that doesn't mean I have to wait for it
~> HOW I FILL MY CUP: number 4.
Everyday I choose to dress in a way which makes me happy. To dress in a way which support your energy and joy - is for some of us, very important. Not for everybody, for me it has always been. However, I admit that I have experienced in a full connection to my soul, how clothes and stuff just don’t matter at all. How unimportant it is, and I have had the feeling of truly not care about and just wanted to do what I was meant to do. But when I’m back and feeling my body and humaness, I couldn’t run from the pull of expressing my self through clothes etc. I guess it’s perhaps even my artistic and creative side which comes out here. It’s just part of the human experience for me, and it helps me on my journey of selflove. I also find it important to feel good, and I do this from wearing stuff I like which is also comfy. Almost all of my clothing is also bought second hand 💖☺️ I dress in a way which reflects my inside mood. Some days I wear something like this, other days I where yoga clothes or even my pyjamas/ relax-clothes. It depends on the day; and I choose each day from what I feel for and then in detail my intuition to tell me what I should where. I’m actually even in the middle of konmari, where you only have things which makes you feel that sparkle of joy (or if your intuition - not mind/ ego/ nostalagia - tells you to keep it because it is usefull in the overall picture). Konmari is amazing. And hard. But it has truly changed my way of looking at my stuff. For years I have heard of it, but never practiced it fully until I saw a documentary on Netflix.
One surprising thing that I learned when training to be a hypnotherapist was how a person’s subconscious is like a 9 year old’s mind. 💭 It is simple and straightforward, perceiving things and situations as plainly as they are.
Because our subconscious is a repository of our wisdom and knowledge (making up 88-90% of the power of the mind) we as hypnotherapists try to harness that power to encourage positive change in our patients — whether it is overcoming a fear or phobia (e.g. public speaking, being in social situations, etc.) breaking a bad habit, or managing day-to-day stress and anxiety.
Hypnotherapy is all about empowering a person to be the best version of themselves. If you want to learn more about it, feel free to message me and we can talk about how it can help you today. 🌱 #riayaphypnotherapy
Each and everyone one of us has their own conception of the kind of persons they are. It is called the "self-image". A term popularized by the plastic surgeon Dr. Maxwell Maltz. This image is composed of building blocks that could be anything we've experienced in our lives from failures to successes, pride, triumphs, beliefs, deceptions, etc.
This self-image is so powerful and it controls most of the aspects of your life especially your results. If you're interested and willing to learn some precious information on this topic, join us during our live webinar on Wednesday March 06 at 8pm.

Curiosity is the act of seeking knowledge about something or someone.
Judgement is making an assumption, decision or conclusion about something or someone.
Curiosity allows you to get the story as information. Judgement, sometimes, to me, most of the time is seen as a negative opinion about something or someone without all the story or facts.
Do your research, learn about what you curious about before jumping to a judgement.
Not so big secret, I don’t like cake. Dairy, wheat, and eggs all mixed together is the perfect storm for a belly ache. The daunting struggle of finding that balance of working, taking care of others, and self care is a daily beast. Don’t let the trips fool you much of the time I spend traveling includes a bit of work and when it’s not the day job, ambition and small business easily take over personal holidays. What’s a girl to do? Spa Baths, body scrubs, massages when possible. But other times just a simple baking class at a local shoppe is a great way to pass a few hours. I’m surely not a baker as it requires a level of exactness that doesn’t generally suit my “season to taste”, use ‘nuff of a particular ingredients, mix until the texture feels right, go with the flow type of attitude. This apple pie was a good class day. Because pies are supposed to have a homemade feel and not be too exact. It looks a bit dry because it doesn’t have the egg wash that gives the smooth edge to pastry. But for something with just a few ingredients, it was not short on taste. This version is savory and not too sweet. The tannins from the locally grown apples and the cinnamon meld together for a great treat.

I am really into this style right now ! Best part of this desing is that when you remove all the accessory you can really create something new into this space.
Love it 🛁 👌🏻

Today we are inviting all King's staff and students to the world premiere of ‘DON’T BLAME JACK' ; a semi-autobiographical film written, directed and produced by the award-winning artist/film-maker Dale John Allen @daleoxo . Dale is a postgraduate film student at Manchester School of Art and his work explores themes around the social politics of representation, particularly within the #lgbt community, in addition to creating work which challenges the stigma surrounding mental illness.
The film portrays overcoming the loss of self, the recovery process and adjusting to new circumstances. It is a story about learning self-love, self-appreciation and acceptance. “Manic-depressive Jack must find a way to leave his manic highs behind him. Can the dullness of ordinary life ever compare to the magic of mania? And is sanity and stability really worth the sacrifice?” To register go to 'Get ticket' in our bio section.
The movie will be screened in the main IoPPN building at Wolf's on Lecture Theatre, 5pm-8pm
The event is open to staff & students across the college. If you are not staff or students at King's and if you have any queries, contact James Mccarthy via email@example.com

Just some this ☝️ it’s what I need right now! This year started in a rather chaotic manner for myself. Chaotic in an abstract way, with constant colds and sickness meaning I was house bound and working around the clock in a slow consistent manner, at home day in day out like some unrelenting Groundhog Day.
It was a mental feat to say the least, to forego outings, social gatherings, trips away and to have to find happiness in myself and my situation at home even when I wasn’t feeling it.
It made me feel more down then I have felt in a long time and as a mum I have naturally beaten myself up over feeling like this, for resenting being at home and having to look after Oscar and Emmet. “How can I be so selfish when I have been so lucky to call these children my own”, “how can I be so ungrateful”, “am I even making a positive difference in their life”, “am I damaging my children?” etc etc. Essentially I have been super unkind to myself and let negative thought patterns get the better of me and tell me who I am rather then giving myself a break and some well deserved love.
It can feel like a real effort to switch off this type of thinking once it starts and it literally spirals out of control into all areas of my life, until I end up feeling very unworthy and unaccomplished in all departments.
But like usual from these low points I can start to see some of the other things in life a little clearer, like creative direction and future goals to work towards, and this week I have finally felt a big shift in my energy, a little lighter and a little more positive about this year to come.
I’m writing about this right now because I feel like a lot of people go through these negative thought patterns, put too much pressure on themselves and end in a heap! If any of what I’m saying resonates with you, please be kind to yourself we are all worthy of happiness and a positive inner dialogue 💕
